Spaces of Hope arts class

Spaces of Hope is a community arts project to provide participants with a time to relax, have fun and develop friendships with others in the Bow area.

Whether you’ve never drawn or painted anything before, or already have some art and craft skills, then these free workshops are for you; to learn some new techniques or develop those you have already, and to participate in designing and making a mixed media mural for the Bow Community Centre.

Initial workshops will take place in April via Zoom and then four sessions will take place in small groups within COVID safety guidelines in May.

Participants can attend one or all of the different sessions, subject to space on the live workshops which will take place at Chisenhale Studios.
